So if you know us – you know that New York Palace is one of our favorite places to shoot at and that is from before Lotte was added and of course we were super-thrilled to work with such a beautiful couple in the venue that definitely matches those two!
Ans here come some short stories about their wedding!
- Personal anecdotes about the gown
Since the bride was a little girl she had a vision of what she would look like on her wedding day. When the day finally came to pick her dress, even though she knew exactly what she wanted, she was having a difficult time finding her “dream dress.” Luckily at Bridal Reflections she was able to work directly with a Ysa Makino designer to create her vision! It was an amazing experience. She was only indecisive on whether to have sleeves, so her designer created removable sleeves so she could have both looks on her day. By the end of the process, she said yes to the sketch!
- How the bride and groom met
The bride and groom met in the midst of a busy overcrowded New York lunch rush. He saw her first and decided to take a risk by approaching her and asking her out on the spot. She was impressed by his confidence and had no choice but to say yes in a New York minute! That day marked the beginning of their love story – a love story that has taken them on many adventures. It was only fitting that we started our greatest adventure yet in the same city that brought us together, New York, New York.
- What inspired their wedding style
Old New York glamour. They both love New York! It’s the city we fell in love in and we wanted to showcase this iconic city and all of its glamour on our wedding day. Our wedding colors were white, blush, and gold.
- How they planned their wedding:
The bride and groom worked as a team to plan their wedding. The wedding coordinator and staff at the Lotte New York Palace were very helpful. In addition, all of our vendors were top-notch and we were very lucky to be able to work with them to make our wedding day even more special.
